Drug Smugglers Debunk Democrats, Smuggle 700 lbs of Cocaine Across Border
Border patrol agents seize narcotics at unsecured area of the U.S.-Mexico border
Border patrol agents have seized hundreds of pounds of cocaine at an unsecured area of the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) say.
The Democrat's media narrative of a 'borderless' society is rapidly being debunked by the day.
"Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading 'bundles of narcotics' into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river," the Washington Examiner reported.
"The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to 'abruptly' drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico."
"705 lbs. of cocaine, caltrops, evidence of sophisticated counter surveillance and splashdown in one encounter are an obvious reminder of the need for more personnel, technology, and infrastructure in the Rio Grande Valley," acting Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz said in a statement.
"Transnational Criminal Organizations continue to exploit areas along our western corridor that accounts for more than 90 percent of our traffic."
"No sign of the national emergency the President is talking about. As a matter of fact, it is pretty tranquil down here," Acosta said on his recent visit to the McAllen TX area of the border shortly before Trump's visit.

The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier. Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2018
The Democrats could solve the Shutdown problem in a very short period of time. All they have to do is approve REAL Border Security (including a Wall), something which everyone, other than drug dealers, human traffickers and criminals, want very badly! This would be so easy to do!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2019
Rep. Matt Cartwright, co-chairman of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee claimed that building walls would not be necessary for stopping narcotics entering the U.S.
"The first thing to focus on are the ports of entry where all the drugs are coming through or the tunnels," Cartwright said.
"This is why we’ve increased Customs and Border Protection because this is how you stop the entry of this stuff, not by building walls in places where goats don’t even climb, and people don’t travel."
President Trump has been Tweeting about the need for a border wall, saying it is essential or slowing the flow of drugs entering the country.
"The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier," Trump tweeted in December.
"Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!"
"The Democrats could solve the Shutdown problem in a very short period. All they have to do is approve REAL Border Security (including a Wall), something which everyone, other than drug dealers, human traffickers, and criminals, wants very badly!"
A new poll recently revealed that the majority of Americans are supporting the President's wall, something he has promised since even before his presidency.
